Other Components of Clubhouse:



High Hopes Clubhouse offers an array of supports that give encouragement and recognition for educational efforts and achievements.  We feel educational advancement for members is a necessary and vital Clubhouse service.  The objectives of our Clubhouse education program is to serve as a liaison for members and community facilities by assisting members with accessing and successfully utilizing adult community education facilities, literacy services, GED programs, disability services, schools, colleges, graduate schools, and other available resources. We also have a Driver’s Education Group that meets each Wednesday at 1:30.

High Hopes Clubhouse supports and encourages healthy lifestyles by working together to establish new habits. As part of our wellness initiative, High Hopes Clubhouse offers all members and staff a full membership to Champions Fitness Club. It is our belief that establishing healthy lifestyles in the community will encourage healthy habits for a lifetime and promote the use of community resources.

  • Members and staff work out together as an effort to utilize our local gym. We are now attending the gym five days per week. 
  • Members and staff are welcome to utilize the gym independently at other times during the week or weekend.
  • Tuesdays and Thursdays, members and staff take Wellness Walks during lunch to establish relationships while promoting a healthy lifestyle.
  • Members and staff meet on Mondays and occasionally Fridays as scheduled to discuss a plethora of topics relating to health and wellness. Every other Wednesday, an educator from SNAP-Ed (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education) comes in to talk about and teach how to make healthy meals on a budget.
